It is possible to change the clutch out if you can find someone who will sell them. Check out some place like surpluscenter.com, check out the power transmissions tab, and click on clutches, and you may find one. Otherwise, it's difficult to find the clutches by themselves. You'll need a puller to get the old one off.

Keeps blowing fuse


Most likely the clutch on your ac compressor has stopped working or the entire compressor has seized. The blower will still work, but without the clutch working correctly int won't cool like it should. While possible to replace just the clutch on a compressor, it's generally better to replace the entire assembly.

The AC compressor on my 98 RAV4 is making alot of noise. Can I get a new serpentine belt to delete the AC? Or is there an easier fix? I'm looking for the cheapest solution.


The cheapest solution is to replace the a/c clutch without servicing the a/c. Just leave the a/c off. Even with a bad compressor the clutch will still serve as the idler.

Nissan 2002 frontier, A/C works fine blows cold, but the belts squeal every time the compressor cycles on. Belts are tight. Nissan dealer said the compressor clutch is bad.


And you want someone who has never seen or heard your vehicle,to disagree with the dealer. Go with the clutch. You may be able to try and sand the clutch face some, and possibly check and adjust the air gap,but a long shot at best.

Faulty Air Conditioning in a 2000 Nissan Pulsar N16


It's quite possible that your A/C compressor is locking up, thereby causing excessive load on the engine.(translates into lack of power to drive wheels) Typically there are signs, such as the noises you heard, or a slipping or thrown belt. If the compressor is locking up, being belt driven it will draw excess power from the engine. It's also possible that the compressor clutch in conjunction with compressor is going bad as well (both are usually related). That would cause excessive amperage to be drawn through the circuit, thereby blowing the fuse. Ultimately, it sounds like you have figured out your own problem, but I hope what I've posted helps.

1999 GMC Sierra a/c clutch replacement


Sounds like it is more likely the high pressure switch on the accumulator acting up (a common issue with older vehicles). To verify this, try putting 12v on the clutch with a jumper (but only for a few seconds each time) to see if it engages. If it is the pressure switch, you may have to replace it and the schrader valves as well.
If the problem is an electrical connection in the clutch, yes, it can be replaced without removing the compressor but that must be done very carefully.
